Help Bafazi Bafazi fly

Update posted by Lauren Immelman On May 30, 2016

On May 13-15, Bafazi Bafazi women from all over South Africa, but mainly Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, ventured to Swinburne in the Free State, to spend a weekend on a farm, playing Ultimate and bonding.

Coaches Anna and Robin led three strenuous training sessions, focussing on throwing and cutting, defensive awareness and positioning, and some super top secret Bafazi game plays. Hard work was punctuated by yoga sessions, braais, looking for the farm's resident lion (seriously), and birthday celebrations.

While a number of training camps have been held for the Gauteng and KZN contingent of Bafazi over the past 6 months, this weekend further served to unite Bafazi women who do not live in Cape Town and therefore miss out on a lot of the weekly trainings. Together, the team took huge strides towards Worlds!

Two weeks ago the South African Mixed Nationals were held on a long weekend in Cape Town. Despite the focus on Mixed Ultimate, on Saturday night women from around the country came together to form a formidable team, the Ninjas. These warriors had one goal: to give Bafazi Bafazi a run for their money. This women’s showcase game was a definite highlight of the weekend, and some of the play can be watched here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpZ8mvO8ZCM&feature=share

Coach Anna Coussens had the following to say “The intensity of the [Women’s Showcase game] match reflected all the hard work the women have been putting in and how far we have come [since the first training camp in November].”

Mixed season is now officially behind us and all our focus turns to Worlds. Our coaches have put together an intensive final month’s training plan. Coach Anna noted “With lots of game time, sprints and conditioning, the energy and desire is running high. We’re excited to see the momentum the next camp will bring and where this team can go”.
